Instructions

Make the Tofu
1
  • Boil a large pot of water for the udon noodles.
  • Place a medium pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Drain the tofu then cut 280g (double for 4p) into 2cm cubes. 
  • Once pan is hot, fry the tofu until slightly crispy, 7-10 mins. Turn frequently to ensure it doesn't burn. 
  • Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside when cooked.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Get Prepped

  • When the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook until warmed through, 1-2 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop into a bowl. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop them sticking together.
  • Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice the scallion.
  • Quarter the lime. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). 
  • Trim then grate the carrot (no need to peel).
  • Trim the pak choi, then thinly slice widthways.
Time to Fry

  • Return the (now empty) pan to a high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, fry the garlic, pak choi and carrot with a pinch of salt and pepper until tender, 3-5 mins.  
  • In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, peanut butter, juice from half the lime wedges and half the chopped scallion
  • Loosen with a splash of water if necessary.
Add an Optional Egg
4
  • Whisk 1 egg (double for 4p) in a bowl with a pinch of salt.
  • Shift the veg to one side of the pan.
  • Pour the egg mix into the empty side of the pan and gently stir with a spatula to create a scrambled texture. 
  • Stir-fry everything together for 2-3 mins.
Finishing Touches
5

  • Gently toss in the drained noodles.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve and Enjoy
